If Beyoglu wants to keep their loyal customers, they should lose their attitude. Yes, they have decent food, if you actually get what you want because they usually run out of everything. After ordering they usually forget about you for the remainder of your meal. I live directly across the street and used to love the place and put up with their subpar service, but as time went on I heard more and more unpleasant stories of poor accomodation. First they stopped delivering, then they only took credit card for orders above $20 which was annoying when I started to pick up salad and hummus for myself. Then they stopped letting patrons altogether. That's when I called to complain- and got an unpleasant response.

This place is right near my house so I may be biased but it never seems to disappoint. I love the hummus, the yogurt sauce, the chicken entree, and the feta wrapped in dough. Absolutely delish! Only downside is that they stopped delivering for some reason...

You will find many tasty affordable treats at this local Turkish restaurant. The food is of high quality, the service is good and the atmosphere is serene, especially upstairs on a busy night or outdoors on a warm day. I recommend the Patlican, cubed eggplant in a tomato and garlic sauce. Also of note are the light Beyoglu salad and their grilled chicken and rice special. It is just wonderful. Top off with a glass of cherry juice and their warm bread with hummus and you will be sated.

I like the location and decoration. I also think that it's not that pricey either. Food was kind of ok.. I think, the beyoglu salad and chicken tastes great but I can't say the same thing for the meatballs. When I had it, they were too salty and soft. Service was also not the greatest. I had to wait 10 min to get a diet coke, and the restaurant wasn't even that busy... I would recommend going there once in a while.

Bottom line-- poorest restaurant in terms of serice that I have ever been to. As a previous server myself, I am not one to be picky. The staff can be rude. I would not recommend this place.

What a pleasant dining experience! The service and atmosphere would make you think the menu would be high-priced, but in fact it is very reasonable. Ordered the hummus and pita appetizer and shared the donor kebab. Both were superb. Definitely big enough dinners to share - and no fee for sharing plates. Service was excellent as well. Our shocker was the bill - came to half the price of what we are used to spending in restaurants of the same quality. I will definitely return.

Stopped with my grand daughter for an early dinner. Most surprised as to how good it was. I was expecting a typical but mediocre dinner and was impressed by the quality of the food.
